Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some...

Fullbody fatigue

So I’ve been running fullbody for a few weeks and realized a couple of things. I’m not growing as I did in the past with this routine. But also I noticed I’m more mentally fatigued vs physically fatigued. Like I don’t feel that I got workout in but I’m tired. Anyone else experience this?

Does replenishing glyocen slow down fat loss?

When I take a week or even a day to eat at maintenance I feel more energized the days after. This is also true at the beginning of a cut. I understand this is because the body isn't glycogen depleted. I have some disclarity here. If I'm eating at true maintenance I'm not gaining weight. But if...

Thumbs up IF your fat and eat at maintaince you build muscle becuase of excess energy?

Hey GUys, Just had this thought come in my mind as I am still fat and have been cutting and lifting and did not eat at maintenance and lift. The people that are fat and eat and maintenance, are they more likely to build muscle as their body has excess energy aka fat to use to building muscle?....

Question Weight loss, 1lb, 2lb, or percent?

Pretty straight forward question here. I have heard so often about losing weight "you gotta lose 1-2lbs a week, anymore and it's bad". Personally it does not make much sense, a person who weighs 200lbs and someone like me at 350, 2 lbs for them is a lot more percent of total body weight than for...
